For the next 10 days the blog will be filled with fantastic youth ministry voices other than mine – because I’m headed to Kenya with 30 high school students and leaders. If you would say a prayer for us as we travel and minister, that’d be great! Here’s the prayer guide we sent to parents this week:
Day ONE & TWO: Travel to Nairobi, Kenya…and then on to Kitale
Pray for a smooth airport check-in. Pray for safe travel to Kenya. Pray for rest and the preparation of our hearts for ministry. Pray that all goes smoothly with the logistics of traveling with a group our size.
Day THREE: Travel to Kitale and CHURCH…and possibly the prison.
Pray for the Congregation of Oasis of hope church. Pray for our team as we minister to the prisoners of the prison. Pray that these prisoners would hear and accept the message of Jesus Christ. Pray for the students as they share at the church.
Day FOUR: First Day of Camp
Please pray for our team as we prepare camp for 200 kids and teenagers. Pray for good connections, good conversation, and for camp to go according to God’s plan. Pray for our partnership with this ministry. Pray for the kids at camp to have open hearts to the message of Jesus Christ. Pray for the students on our team who are teaching, singing, leading and counseling the kids. Pray that we would be open to ministering outside of our comfort zone. Pray for another student on the team today.
Day FIVE: Camp & Academy
Pray that God would give opportunities to our students to share their personal faith with a camper. Pray that we wouldn’t miss any opportunities to share Jesus. Pray that God would make an impact on lives through our team. Pray for your student today.
Day SIX: Camp & High School Speaking
Pray for protection from exhaustion and the enemy as we wrap up our last day of camp. Pray that our team would have courage and be bold in sharing their faith with the street kids. Pray for the team leaders today. Pray for the teachers that they would continue the mission of bringing kids to Jesus Christ. Pray for students as they speak to students at a local high school.
Day SEVEN: Farm & Party
Pray for the our time with these precious children. They have been through so much. Pray that we can encourage them and love them.
Day EIGHT: Work Projects & City Tour
Pray for our last day of ministry. Pray that we would stay focused as team and that fatigue would not set in. Pray that we would make the most of our last day.
Day NINE, TEN & ELEVEN: Pray for safe travel back to Nairobi and then back to America.
Pray that we adjust well spiritually emotionally, and physically. Pray that God would continue to work in our hearts after we return. Pray that we would continue to remember and reflect our journey in Kenya. Pray for protection from sickness and fatigue.
